Below are just a few testimonials given to the clinic after making a full recovery.
Feel free to read more at our office.


Richard's Testimonial - Richard began care with Dr. Scott Timko at Gonstead Physical Medicine on 07/29/2019 for complaints of right lower leg pain which varied between 0 and 6 depending on activity. He also noted numbness at the base of his foot and toes which was a constant 2 to 4. He noted that he had to significantly limit his physical activity due to the pain worsening. Since he is an avid tennis player and enjoys swimming and other outdoor activities, this was severely hindering his lifestyle. These symptoms had begun two years ago after an injury and no other treatment including Physical Therapy and Acupuncture had helped. After a 12-visit program his symptoms are almost completely eliminated. He is now able to play tennis for over two hours without a flare up of his symptoms and he has returned to all the activities he enjoyed prior to start of this problem two years ago.

Bob's Testimonial - Bob discusses his experience with Dr. Timko and Gonstead Physical Medicine including his recovery from chronic severe low back pain with radiating pain into his leg. He talks about lack of success with previous treatments with other physicians and his treatment protocol at our office. His success with chiropractic, spinal decompression, massage and therapeutic exercise was somewhat of a surprise to him considering the length of his condition, it's severity and his unresponsiveness to previous treatments. Robert was a joy to work with and it was a pleasure watching his progress during his care with us.

Linda's Testimonial - Linda began her care with Dr. Timko by having Chiropractic treatments for her chronic low back pain. Seeing success, with a decrease of her pain, she decided to be evaluated nutritionally for additional complaints including High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Acid Reflux and others. Her positive attitude and wonderful personality made her a joy to work with and seeing the improvements in her health, and others like her, make what we do at Timko Chiropractic even more rewarding.

Lynda's Testimonial - Lynda had been experiencing TMJ (jaw) and neck pain for over a year when she sought out care at our office. She was having difficulty opening her mouth to the point it affected her ability to eat. Listen to Lynda tell her story and the results of her treatments.

Jeremy's Testimonial - Jeremy presented to our office with severe right sided sciatica which had been on going for several months. He had been treated unsuccessfully utilizing pain management (epidural injections and pain medications) and Physical Therapy. He had never been to a Chiropractor before and was very hesitant to try another type of treatment. Listen to his story below:

Jayne's Testimonial - Jayne had been experiencing chronic back pain for thirty years and recently had a flare up of acute low back pain with numbness and tingling into her leg. Listen to her story as to how she was helped through chiropractic and physiotherapy at Timko Chiropractic and Holistic Healthcare!

Nancy's Testimonial - Nancy talks about her chronic neck pain, headaches, ringing in her ears and general body aches and how they have been helped through her treatments at our office where other treatments have failed.

Faith J.'s testimonial

Before I started to seek treatment at Gonstead Physical Medicine my major complaint was severe mid to low back pain which could reach a level of 10. I could barely walk, let alone function at this point. I would drink wine, use over the counter medications, and rest every minute I had just to try and get rid of the pain. Dr. Timko, as well as the staff has been sensational with my treatments. I feel wonderful now and I have been becoming more active since my treatments. I am now able to cook for my family and perform regular activities without pain. I would recommend Dr. Timko to friends and family because he is very professional and knows exactly what is best for each patient. Everyone I have come in contact with in the office is wonderful. I like that the office is clean, light, and airy making it a wonderful place to seek treatment.

Charles H's testimonial:

The issue that brought me into Dr. Timko’s office was very painful muscle spasms in my left thigh. They made it impossible to walk upright or for distances longer than 20 feet. I tried using a heating pad and rest to solve the problem, but had no success. Dr. Timko and his staff began my recovery with muscle relaxing treatments to specific areas, followed by adjustments. As I progressed I was put on an exercise regimen to help strengthen and stabilize my spine. The results of my treatment has been a full recovery. I feel better than I did before the injury. Dr. Timko and his staff were very caring and responsive regarding my problem. They have helped me return to good health and I will recommend Dr. Timko to my friends and family.

Andrea S's testimonial:

Before coming to Timko Chiropractic I had pain in my neck, upper and lower back. I could not sit, stand or walk without discomfort. I tried heating pads, stretching and other chiropractors to get rid of my symptoms but nothing worked. Dr. Timko and his staff taught me focused stretching and adjusted me in ways that were the most beneficial for my body. Through treatment at Timko Chiropractic I now feel much better, maintain adjustments longer and have seen before and after X-rays proving curvature correction in my neck! I enjoy coming into Timko Chiropractic. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and makes me feel at home. I have recommended Dr. Timko to friends as well as family and will continue to do so.

Walter S's testimonial:

My major symptoms before coming to Dr. Timko were neck, shoulder and lower back pain and stiffness. The tension in my neck caused frequent headaches and limited my range of motion. My symptoms impacted my everyday life. I was unable to stand or walk for long periods of time, which lead to a decrease in activity. I tried to use exercise and stretching to get rid of my discomfort, but the headaches and pain made it too difficult. Dr. Timko and his staff started me on a focused physical therapy regimen along with his adjustments. The combination worked very well for me. I now have greater range of motion in my neck, decreased headache frequency and intensity, and less low back discomfort. While you can’t stop the aging process, you can make it easier by following a simple yet effective exercise routine along with getting adjusted. I feel welcome here at all times and was never made to feel any question was dumb. I would gladly recommend Timko Chiropractic to others.

Katy M.

Before seeing Dr. Timko I was experiencing lower back pain which radiated down my legs. The pain and being misaligned made walking and keeping my balance difficult. In order to address the issue my primary care physician recommended I seek out a “good chiropractor”. After receiving care from Dr. Timko I am completely cured and have resumed a normal life filled with walking, bike riding and dancing. I recommend Dr. Timko to my friends and family all the time!

Jade O.

I appreciate Dr. Timko's lectures. Most doctors don't give up their own time to educate their patients at no expense. There is a lot about natural medicine and chiropractic treatments that is new to me, and new ideas are out there every day. The lectures help me understand chiropractic adjustments and nutrition, and how they work together to heal.

Catherine S.

I am grateful to finally have a chiropractor I would recommend in Dr. Timko. He actually listens when I explain my symptoms. His treatments always help.

Ed. M

Before seeing Dr. Timko I was having lower back pain as well as shoulder pain during the night.The pain limited me in all aspects of my everyday life. Dr. Timko is the only chiropractor I’ve seen besides one in Pennsylvania. The benefits after seeing Dr. Timko are a full restoration of my everyday activities. I now have no restrictions in movement and always leave the office pain free. I would recommend Dr. Timko to all my friends, family and anyone looking for an excellent chiropractor.

Bill S.

Problems like headaches, toothaches, dizziness were really bothering me. I was worried it could be something seriously wrong. Then I got an adjustment and those problems were gone. Now, if those problems come back, I just see Dr. Timko for a neck adjustment.

Carlos G.

My back was stiff and sore. I thought I was just getting old and that was part of it. I was in a car accident, and that didn't help one bit. Dr. Timko worked on my back for weeks. When he released me, my back was much better.

Alex J.

I discovered that health problems and pains can happen just because one vertebrae is out of place. I used to be afraid that I might need to see specialists but after spinal adjustments, the symptoms were gone. Now I never consider seeing another doctor before I first try to cure the problem with one of Dr. Timko's adjustments.

Trish B.

Nutrition, organic foods, and supplements fascinate me because I've learned how powerful they can be to improve health. I have had several conditions that were turned around and healed with natural medicine supplements. Dr. Timko is a great source of information on healing and good health through nutrition. If I have a question about a new trend or product in natural health, and he isn't familiar with it, Dr. Timko says he will research it. Matched with his knowledge of human physiology, I respect and trust Dr. Timko's advice.

A picture of a Amy Puckett a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“I had neck, back and hip pain before receiving treatment from Dr. Lara. My head felt too heavy for my neck and resulting in constant aching pain. My hips always had a dull ache which prevented me from exercising and from being able to sit or stand for more than an hour at a time.

Now that I have completed treatment with Dr. Lara, I am happy to say that I haven’t felt this great since my early twenties. I can workout, run, do squats, lunges and upper body exercises at any intensity. I continue to feel great!

Dr. Lara is so friendly and it’s always a pleasure to see him and get an adjustment. He is very intelligent and the best doctor for chiropractic care. I have already recommended him to my family and friends.”

A picture of a Jesus Montanez a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“Before seeing Dr. Lara, I had extreme lower back pain. I couldn’t even get up from bed or a chair. I was unable to go to work because the pain was so intense. When this problem first happened, I went to a medical doctor but received no help. The treatments from Dr. Lara have benefited me tremendously. I no longer have back pain, I returned to work and can now spend time doing the activities I enjoy with my family. I am even able to exercise and run! I am happy that I am better and that my family no longer has to worry about me. I definitely recommend Dr. Lara to anyone suffering from back pain.”
- Jesus Montañez

A picture of a Sandra Lima a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“Before coming to see Dr. Lara, I suffered from severe low back pain for many years. This pain affected my life to the point where I couldn’t do anything. I originally went to my family medical doctor for this problem and he prescribed me pain and sleeping pills. I have lived my life like this for the past five years. When I finally came to Dr. Lara he found that the cause of my pain was a herniated disc. I began spinal decompression therapy and laser therapy and in 2 months, I am all better! I can now do all the activities that I enjoy, basic activities like cleaning my home, sitting for long periods of time and just living a normal life which is something I couldn’t do before. To anyone suffering with severe back pain, I 100% recommend Dr. Lara and the therapies he uses to correct the spine!”

A picture of a Carleen Jones a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“My life before seeing Dr. Lara consisted of daily pain in my neck and low back. I also had headaches, nausea and sometimes vomiting. My left hand would hurt all the way into my armpit area. It was even painful to simply lay in bed. For over 30 years I had numbness on the right side of my knee, which traveled, to my thigh. For 10 years my left knee was numb which also extended into my leg.

These painful conditions really affected my life. I was unable to exercise or even do some walking. My job was all I had enough energy for, as my pain would continue to worsen unless I received an adjustment, which gave me a window of comfort. It was inconvenient to be unable to take trips or be the car very long without resulting in increased pain for days. The simple motion of going over a curb, speed bumps or driveways gave me increased pain.

I went to 12 doctors for these problems and it was very challenging since I am a travel nurse. Dr. Lara is the best doctor I have ever been to!

The specific spinal adjustments from Dr. Lara really helped me have more mobility and less pain. As Dr. Lara looked deeper into the cause of my pain he discovered that damaged discs were a main contributor. I started disc decompression treatment (DRX9000) and had positive results right after my first treatment. I regained sensation in my left leg! Now after completing the treatments I have no numbness in either leg whatsoever! I no longer have the pain and I can sleep comfortably, sit, drive and just live so much better than before. I feel that the DRX9000 treatment is nothing short of a miracle. I am so sold and thankful to God for this invention. I am thankful to Drs. Jose and Kim Lara, Dr. Pisano and all of the staff. They all did a super job throughout my treatment. Everyone has been saying that they see a difference on my face. I smile more and am more relaxed. I absolutely would recommend this treatment!!”

A picture of a Nellie Alvarado a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“I was in so much pain. My medical doctor suggested surgery for my back problem but I refused since I saw how much pain my neighbor was in after her back surgery. One day, I heard Dr. Lara on the radio explaining chiropractic care. So I decided to take a chance and try it and I am so glad that I did! Before treatment I was so limited in doing things. I used to have throbbing back pain after walking, exercising and even some house chores. Dr. Lara studied my MRI and discovered that I had a bulging disc, which was causing my terrible pain. To correct this disc problem, Dr. Lara recommended spinal decompression therapy using the DRX9000C. I am so happy with the results! After only 8 treatments I am sleeping through the night, doing exercise and feeling so much better. I would highly recommend this treatment to my family and friends.”
- Nellie Alvarado

A picture of a Rosa Beltran a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“Before seeing Dr. Lara I suffered from severe neck pain. My head was always pounding. I was unable to lift things and my arms felt paralyzed. I was always tired. I was constantly complaining to people about my pain. I felt useless because I was unable to do any of my daily chores around the house. I went to 3 other doctors for this problem but they were unable to help me. Now that I have received treatment with the DRX9000C I can move without pain or fear. I can do my daily chores and activities. I am able to lift, bend and go to places I enjoy like the park. I finally feel the desire and strength to live again! I highly recommend this treatment to anyone with back problems. I thank Dr. Lara for helping me get my life back!”
- Rosa Beltran

A picture of a Steve Borg a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“Before seeing Dr. Lara for my herniated disc, I felt sharp stabbing pain in my left hip area. This pain prevented me from walking, exercising and most importantly, playing golf. I saw a medical doctor and a different chiropractor for this problem but the pain was still there.

After receiving treatment from Dr. Lara on the DRX900C, I am now back to golfing and exercising. I feel much better.”
- Steve Borg

A picture of a Sondra Hawkins a previous patient of Dr. Jose Lara“Before seeing Dr. Lara, I was in constant pain due to my severe back problem and sciatica. I was unable to exercise, walk without pain or sleep through the night. After receiving an MRI, it was discovered that I had 3 herniated discs in my lower back. I sought care from several medical doctors but the only options they gave me were pain medication and surgery. Dr. Lara studied my MRI and recommended that I try disc decompression therapy (DRX9000C). I started the therapy in April and by mid May, I am happy to say that I no longer have pain! I can finally sleep through the night, walk without pain and exercise! I am so satisfied with this treatment that I have already recommended it to three of my friends! Thank you so much Dr. Lara.”

A picture of a David Sanderson a previous patient of Dr. Jose LaraFor the past 10 years I have been suffering from severe back pain. I’ve had 5 injuries to my lower back, which resulted in several bulging discs. My pain affected every area of my life including relationships, work, fun, exercising, activities with my children and sleeping. Now that I have undergone spinal decompression therapy with the DRX9000C, I am finally enjoying a better quality of life. I am now able to exercise and sleep better. I have more energy and vitality. My back is healing and I am not in pain anymore. Thank you Dr. Lara for offering this amazing treatment and giving me my life back. Words cannot express my gratitude properly.
